Boy - did I learn a lesson on this challange! Don't - I repeat - DO NOT rely on the title to set the context of the photo - What I believe I have is a GREAT photo, maybe for a "free-form" challenge - but after reading the forums this week (and reading the COMMENTS that ECHO the SENTIMENT of the FORUMS), there may as well be NO TITLES ALLOWED seeing how some people frame their judging

Anyways ~ at Downtown Disney, the last store (west-to-east) before you get to the park entrances is a Disney Store, and over each of the 3 doors is a diorama of Disney characatures. The outside common area is lit just like the inside of the main park; ie just light enough. A statue of a cartoon character looks pretty much like a cartoon itself, and the photo I got almost looks like CG --- anyways, I liked it ...

The colors and lighting in this shot are incredible. I don't know who or what Diogenes is, so I'm missing out on your challenge interpretation... but I give you the benefit of the doubt.

Honest Corporation? Bullocks! To learn more about the detramental effects of capitalism and statism, go to www.infoshop.org

Tweedle-dum or Tweedle-dee? In the corporate world, it can be hard to tell...

If this photo was titled "gorilla with a lantern", it wouldn't meet the challenge. I ignore titles.

Cute picture, but depends too much on the title to fit the challenge. Better lighting would help the pic.
07/30/2002 05:45:00 PM
humor always works with me for extra brownie points. I like the perspective of the shot too.
07/30/2002 04:48:00 PM
is this actually a character that you photographed? It looks almost 3D animation like.
07/30/2002 01:32:00 PM
Other than the title, it doesn't fit the theme
07/30/2002 01:13:00 PM
Ain't edukayshun wunnerful? ;) I LOVE the title and it's humorous take on the challenge topic. The photo is well-lit and well-composed. I think if you had any more light on it, some of the charm would be lost in the harshness of your model's composite body. Congrats on a job well done.

I can't load this picture -

I like this. Cute and colorful.

Harsh harsh picture. What a bleak world view everyone has this week! Well lit and framed. Perhaps a shade dark.
07/30/2002 07:42:00 AM
would have liked to see some light from the lamp, but good theme and great lighting anyway! 8

Finally, a fun photo:)

Cool, but wierd. Too long of title, but probably needed. Don't like the strong light in the lower left corner, but probably couldn't be helped. I would have loved to see the lamp lit, but you probably couldn't do that either. Focus is GREAT. Color is wonderful! I really like how the face came out. Personal nit issue: isn't this a photo of somebody else's art? I going for an 8, what do you say? Swash

Good use of lighting which helps to convey the message
07/29/2002 05:16:00 AM
If you say it...!! I can understand anything without the tittle (otherwise, that searching is a very hard thing).
07/29/2002 01:13:00 AM
interesting photo, but it doesn't say 'corporate world' without the title... - jmsetzler

Great photo. Without the title though I wouldn't be able to correlate this with the challenge. 6
